Stressful last couple of days . I needed a quick fix, Arborio rice is the key to this dish took my time and it gave me the result
one pot dish too and no reason it cant be cooked in the camper
never made it before, so can I have an idiots guide to please
I like risotto very much. Just a few simple ingredients can give such a fantastic result. Some rice, usually Arborio but I have used Canaroli, some finely chopped onions, a little garlic, a splash of good olive oil, some good stock kept just under a simmer and then the dish special ingredient. Could be as simple as some baby broad beans, could be any variety of seafood or even go wild with bacon and mushrooms.
I like to toast the rice in a little olive oil then splash a glass of wine over before starting to add the hot stock a little at atime. This gives a glass ready to be refilled with wine to drink over the half hour the dish takes to cook. Finished with lemon juice (very important) a knob of butter and served with grated parmesan and maybe a salad and there you go. Madame, another glass of wine?
I adore risotto!
Funnily enough we've been eating it a lot lately. Neil has been experimenting and he's got it near perfect .... mmm mmmmm
Weirdly, I've been trying to eat a lot less meat. Not so weird really - having cancer etc. makes you take a long, hard look at everything you do, and diet is mega important, even if you're healthy. Your overall health comes directly from your gut and what you put into it.
My big sis has started fetching me unpasteurised Jersey milk from a local farm near her. Not only does it taste out of this world, it's also full of fantastic bacteria which stopped hitting our stomachs when everything became pasteurised years ago.
Vegetable risotto (or with seafood/fish) is one of the tastiest dishes you can eat, proper comfort food.
It's a perfect dish to make in the camper too!
Come on Channa, some sort of recipe pleeeeease.
Looks fabulous Andrew, we all need the recipe..... otherwise we’ll send the Boys round!!!
